I have been tending toward B+W rubber hoods for ...

I have been tending toward B+W rubber hoods for my Olympus lenses as they screw into the polarizing filter so the filter can be turned by turning the hood. The Olympus lens hood on my 14-150 makes turning the polarizer difficult, and the Olympus hood on my 17mm doesn't easily fit over the polarizer and when on makes turning it difficult. Anyone know how this hood works w polarizing filters?
Asked by: Douglas
It would be a bit difficult to use the hood and a polarizer filter at the same time.

question

How is the best way to put this hood on ?? I have never useda slide lens hood before and wondered if this one has a different way of mounting. Jim
Asked by: James W
As said line up the white line on the lens and the bent arrow on the hood give it a 1/4 turn clockwise to lock it on the lens. I did have mine come loose half way and the hood was ajar. But it had gotten loosened and moved around during a 10 day trip to England and about with to much gear in a small bag.
